When it comes to my entire Kerala journey, this was the hotel which had THE BEST location. Its on an island of sorts in the middle of the backwaters. Makes for a beautiful and almost surreal setting in the monsoon months specially.
You have to be careful to time your boat ride well by calling them in advance. Also make sure you factor the time taken in the boat journey into your day's plan if you're on a tight schedule.
We indulged in some relaxing body massages out here, really nice stuff, a word of thanks out to chris and ashim for giving us some great therapy after a long long day of travel.
The hotel usually has some small entertainment activities planned out at dinner time. Even when there were barely 10 guests in monsoon season, a spirited dancer had been called in to showcase some authentic keralite dances. Now that's a hotel committed to their guests !
We stayed only for a night but I would sincerely suggest staying here for a bit more, specially recommended for the honeymooners (book the room with the private pools - a brilliant luxury when you slide open a glass door to a small pool of your own, with a separate outdoor shower and views of the backwaters adjacent !)
Highly Recommended !
